What do you want your potential employer to know about you?

With a focus in Human Development and Family Science, I am aware that education is influenced by more than what happens in the classroom and I am prepared to assist students in their learning and parents in their understanding of their children's education. I have been equipped in my studies and experiences to meet both state and school standards, and know how to differentiate my teaching so that every student can learn in the most beneficial way to him or her. I know that my academic abilities, experiences, and personality will assist me in communicating information clearly, working as a contributing member of a team, and being an effective educator. With the firm belief that education is vital to children's lives and that teachers must promote success, I will do everything possible to help children achieve success. I want them to know that no goal is too great, and with hard work, determination, and a positive attitude anything can be accomplished.

I am a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent teacher who will be an asset to your school. I love challenges and am open to learning new methods and theories. I love working as a member of a team, and feel that collaboration and communication is essential to learning.
